believe that the tax cuts for the wealthy stimulate the economy? dold: i believe keeping tax rates low are going to be helpful. president obama said in 2010 said in a fragile economy, we should not be raising rates. that's when the economy was growing at 3.5%. the economy today is growing at 1 minute 5%. i asked my opponent how raising taxes was going to help more people get employed, how it was going to help these small businesses who are struggling to make ends meet. frankly, there was no response. >> moderator: do you believe tax cuts for the wealthy stimulate the economy? schneider: i stand with the president that we should keep tax rates for all earners under 250,000 where they are. but we have a fiscal imbalance. we need to address that. by raising the tax rates, going back to the tax rates of the 1990s where we had a growing economy, we were creating 23 million jobs. the congressional budget office looked at the plan to go back to 1990 rates on income over $250,000, they said it would reduce our net debt over ten years by almost a trillion dollars. that's a significant step in b

designates 36 bank holding companies as liable to create the instability in the u.s. economy if they fail. in addition, it goes on to permit the financial stability oversight council. it designates an unknown number of additional nonbank institutions that could create instability in the u.s. economy. now what does it mean when congress gives this authority or designates this notion in the statute? what it says is these institutions are too big to fail. so not only are we worried about the too big to fail but we have made the problem worse by actually embedded in the statute for these banking institutions and promoting the fsoc to designate certain institutions and we understand just from reading the newspapers that they have for the large insurance companies and in one case a finance company to be designated as too big to fail. what does it mean? what effect does that have? on the creditors will get these institutions and much safer investments than others. first of all once they are so designated they are supposed to be regulated stringently by the fed to really don't know what stringent
